If you are looking for a rewarding and challenging career that makes a real difference to the working lives of South Australians, then you're at the right place.

Every day, SafeWork SA inspectors connect with workers and employers across a range of industries to ensure their workplaces are safe and everyone is meeting their safety obligations. Working as an inspector provides an unmatched insight into all aspects of industry and business operations, so if you love variety and don't want to be office-bound, then consider becoming a SafeWork SA inspector.

Being an inspector demands a specific set of skills, knowledge, and experience. So you have to ask yourself, do you have what it takes? You won't be expected to know everything before you join, but you will need to demonstrate that you have the right combination of temperament, ability and industry experience. There is an extensive training program to support you in developing your technical expertise and preparing you for the types of situations you're likely to come across in your everyday work.

This site has all the information you will need to help you decide whether becoming a SafeWork SA inspector is the right career choice for you. You can discover the benefits of being an inspector, learn more about the training program and what you'll be doing day to day, watch testimonials from our inspectors, find out what we're looking for, and what you need to do to join our dynamic team of dedicated and experienced inspectors.
